The Decelerator is a nine-artist, video-based exhibition opening in New York, Budapest, and Berlin on March 18th and running weekends through April 2nd, 2011.
The Decelerator is an entity, a device, designed as an installation to actively slow down how we perceive time in relation to accelerating technological advances, which are approaching the speed of light, said co-curator, Leo Kuelbs. This exponential speed increase creates a change in how we relate to land and space, bringing the physical world closer together and fracturing trajectories of thought and consciousness in multifarious states of being. The viewers are encouraged to find a perspective, a footing, that, while engaging and dynamic, is also tenable within The Decelerators frame work.
Eight video artists from Europe and the Americas will present a variety of new and existing videos and video-mapped installations. The Decelerator also includes a subterranean sound piece by the German Industrial musician Alexander Hacke (Einstuerzende Neubauten). This sound piece, the murmuring thread, will play throughout the respective spaces. The mix of work installed within this amazing soundtrack, presented simultaneously in three cities, makes The Decelerator an exciting and conceptually new form of exhibition, which mirrors the conversations we hope the show will broach, added Kuelbs.
Co-curators Adam Nankervis, Kosma Zsolt and Leo Kuelbs all hail from different continents, as well, adding to the global aspects of The Decelerator.
